Lionel is the right-hand partner of Dumbo in Disney's 1985-87 television series Dumbo's Circus. He is notable for being the very first character to be voiced by Jim Cummings.
He is a Brooklyn accented lion who serves as Dumbo's right-hand partner, popcorn server, ticket taker, and sideshow barker. He has a knot in his tail. He was inspired by the character of Timothy Q. Mouse from the 1941 film. His voice is almost similar to Mickey Mouse's.
